PC shuts down when I select restart

I am having a problem with my PC shutting down when I select restart. To complicate things more it is only in the administrator profile. In the "limited user" profile everything works as expected.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Here are a couple things you can try.

Edit the MSCONFIG Startup tab and Services Tab. Disable the entire startup tab, and HIDE ALL MICROSOFT SERVICES on the Services tab, then uncheck the rest. Reboot, then try a restart. If the problem goes away, then start adding items back one at a time till you identify the item causing the issue.

Updating the BIOS and Video driver are usually helpful.

You can also create a new profile with Admin rights and see if it works normally. Often, a profile will develop issues that are usually easier resolved by just creating a new profile, then moving data files to the new profile. (Never delete the old profile till you are absolutely sure there is nothing left in the profile you need.)

Shut down windows

Try holding the shift key down while selecting restart, then select "Turn off your PC."

Then power it back on normally. Startup will likely be a little longer than normal.

(The default "Shutdown" option in Windows 8 actually just hibernates your laptop.)

My touch pad can't work and windows couldn't shutting down . please suggest us how to solve that problem regards. agus tiar

If the problem is that you can't shut down your PC because you can't use your touch pad to click shutdown, you could use the keyboard instead.

Click the windows key
Select the shutdown using arrow keys
select shutdown, you could use tab to switch wether restart or standby
then press Enter

easier way is, press alt+F4 button (it will lead you to shutdown option)
select the desired shut down option using tab button.
press enter.

My kid's acer aspire one has dropped network connections, when I try to connect using network connections the icon doesn't respond? any idea's??

  • Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties"
  • Select "Hardware" and click on "Device Manager"
  • Find your wireless card under "Network adapters" and double-click it.
  • Verify that there aren't any auto power management settings enabled that might be shutting your card down prematurely.
Another thing to try is to simply shut down all your hardware - ie. your PC, your modem, your router, your laptop, etc. - anything on the network. Then power them back on in the following order: modem -> router -> PC (wired) -> laptop (wireless) and see if that fixes the issue.

If that doesn't work, you can try completely reinstalling the keys as follows:
  • Uninstall the TCP/IP protocol
  • If prompted, do not restart the computer now.
  • Delete the following registry keys:
    • [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WinSock2
    • [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WinSock
  • This time, restart the computer.
  • Reinstall the TCP/IP protocol.

When I shut down it reemained with shutting Down

No problem, possibly due to null pointer allocation to shutdown thread. Just switch the notebook off using the power button, restart & select start windows normally.

It went asleep and won't wake up. i have to manually shut it down and reboot...

Hello definedeclin,

Try pressing the <Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Del> keys together.
If that doesn't work then the Asus Eee PC 900 user manual has this information:
Click 'Instant Shutdown' and select an action from the dialog box. You can activate the task manager, put the system in standby, restart or shut down the system.

Here's a link to download the ... user manual (zip file):

Have a great day,

My ZD8000 Restarts automatically When I Shut It Down

This sounds like a hardware fault with the motherboard. I would suggest you resseting your BIOS to default settings. Do you know how to do that? Please advise...

My computer does not shut down

Gonna try and teach you some basic programming :-).
What the following will do, is create you a Desktop Shutdown Icon, which when you double click on it, will hopefully shut down your PC rather then restart it.
So here's how to do it :-).

1. Right click on your desktop and select new > shortcut.
2. In dialog box type “shutdown –s”
3. Click next to continue and then type a name for shortcut (IE Shut Down PC) and click finish.

Now you should see the shortcut on your desktop and will hopefully solve your problem.

My computer won't shut down it just keeps restarting

The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know
